目玉焼き ★ Sunny Side Up

Fried eggs have got to be one of the strangest fashion trends I've seen in years and I LOVE IT

I recently decided that I wanted some kind of pom-pom charm for my handbag and in my search I found myself on ASOS where I discovered the perfection that is the fried egg pom-pom from Skinny Dip (。→v←。)♥ 
I wanted something a little unique and this just ticked all the boxes for me, it was love at first sight 

Finding the egg charm led me to search for other egg products which is where I came across this fabulous sequined egg T-shirt too. It's so ridiculous, it had to be mine!

For me, the weirdest part of my love for the fried egg trend is I actually hate eating eggs
But damn... they cute. I blame Gudetama!

Sadly, my egg charm was actually faulty, but ASOS customer service were amazing and replaced it for me straight away with zero fuss and no extra charges. I feel as though it's important to mention this because people are always so quick to complain when things go wrong, but we should give credit where credit is due and they were fantastic!

ポテトチップスコーラ ★ Potato Chips Cola

It's been at least 11 years since I discovered and became obsessed with Japanese snacks, and sometimes I worry that it's got to a point where I have seen and tried everything before. So I am always happy to discover a new and ridiculous product being released in Japan.

This year Namco released a Potato Chips flavoured Cola drink in their arcade game centers and I was lucky enough to win a bottle from a giveaway hosted by Tokyo Treat

The flavour is supposed to replicate the taste of drinking cola after you've eaten a handful of salted potato chips, and whilst this isn't something I do often, I do have memories of drinking cola with a half chewed mouth of crisps when I was a kid haha. So I was a little worried about how this would turn out!

I told myself it would taste better if it had been in the fridge for a while, but I'm not sure if I was also putting off tasting it heh, though it turns out that I didn't need to worry or hesisitate!
The flavour was lighter than regular coke with a very slight hint of salt, and it was actually really delicious!
I often find regular cola drinks to be heavy and (TMI incoming) it makes my saliva thick and mouth feel gross BUT there wasn't any of that with this cola drink. It was a pleasure to drink ♥

I am always to happy to pleasantly surprised by these kinds of products
It's just a shame that they're almost always Limited Edition and hard to come by, as I want more!

Soaking with a Shiba

I've always loved taking baths, and whilst I'm a little too big to shimmy around and pretend to be a mermaid these days, I supposed a nice relaxing soak with a fun bath bomb is just as fine (●・ω・●)
